Masterworks on Paper - Portland Museum of Art

7 Congress Square
Portland, Maine 04101
Phone: (207) 775-6148

          

Jan 22 thru Jun 05, 2016. Due to light sensitivity issues, many works on paper in the PMA collection cannot be exhibited very often. Indeed, the public is likely unaware that the PMA holds such treasures - work in a wide range of styles and subject matter by artists such as Chuck Close, Stuart Davis, Edward Hopper, Jasper Johns, Edouard Manet, Andy Warhol, and more. Masterworks on Paper presents these works together for the first time as part of Your Museum, Reimagined, a multiyear project based around improved access. It is the first major exhibition to appear as part of this project, and it provides visitors a rare chance to witness these seldom-seen masterpieces and share in the act of discovery. The exhibit is on view Jan. 22 through June 5, 2016. Event #16551   Map + Directions   |   Report Update   |   Submit An Event   |   Promote Your Event & Business |   Host & Design Your Website


Duncan Hewitt - Portland Museum of Art

7 Congress Square
Portland, Maine 04101
Phone: (207) 775-6148

          

Jan 22 thru Sep 04, 2016. "Turning Strange" brings together carved wood sculptures from the last 20 years of Maine sculptor Duncan Hewitt's career. Born on Long Island in 1949, Hewitt attended Colby College and later returned to Maine after receiving his MFA from the University of Pennsylvania in 1975. He taught sculpture at the University of Southern Maine for more than 40 years and has presented his work throughout New England. Although the PMA has included Hewitt's sculptures in two Biennials and two group exhibitions, this installation marks the first large-scale presentation of Hewitt's work at the museum and the sculptor's first major solo exhibition. Spanning the third floor contemporary art gallery, the exhibit introduces new audiences to Hewitt's beautifully formed and enigmatic objects. The exhibit is on view Jan. 22 through Sep. 4, 2016.

Jame Chute Exhibit - PhoPa Gallery

132 Washington Avenue
Portland, Maine
Phone: (207) 517-0200

          

Feb 17 thru Apr 02, 2016. James Chute grew up in a small Maine town and attended rural schools where there was no formal art education. Consequently he believed that people who could draw had some special secret talent. What a fool he was. Later on he went to college in another state and learned something. Then he got married to Sara Hayes and they had two children, Ethan and Bethany. He worked in the public sector for 30 years: proof that he had not learned much. Realizing at last that his children were artists and that they could not have gotten all of their talent from their mother, he began to make "art." The exhibit includes ink on paper drawings and one large-scale collaborative drawing project, The Rhombi. Opening reception on Thursday, Feb. 18 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Drawing games with the artist on the same day from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and also on Thursday, Mar. 24 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Exhibit continues through April 2.

Edward Curtis: The North American Indian - Portland Museum of Art

7 Congress Square
Portland, Maine 04101
Phone: (207) 775-6148

          

Feb 26 thru May 29, 2016. From 1907 to 1930, Edward Curtis (United States, 1868-1952) photographed and studied Native Americans for his monumental book project, The North American Indian. Funded by financier J.P. Morgan, the project represents one of the most significant and comprehensive efforts of the early 20th century to document Native Americans and Native American culture. Including more than 80 tribes, primarily from the American West and Pacific Northwest, Curtis' 20-volume magnum opus combines narrative sections on Native American languages, traditions, and cultural practices with more than 2,000 photogravures, or images produced from a process in which photographic negatives are transferred and etched in to a metal plate. Although Curtis has been criticized for his romantic depiction of Native Americans and for perpetuating the stereotype of the "primitive Indian," The North American Indian is notable for its impressive scope, enduring historical value, and artistry. The exhibit is on view Feb. 26 through May 29, 2016. Event #16553   Map + Directions   |   Report Update   |   Submit An Event   |   Promote Your Event & Business |   Host & Design Your Website


Youth Art Month - Portland Museum of Art

7 Congress Square
Portland, Maine 04101
Phone: (207) 775-6148

          

Feb 28 thru Mar 29, 2015. The Portland Museum of Art (PMA) is proud to welcome the annual Youth Art Month exhibition, which features student art from across the state of Maine, back to its galleries. Youth Art Month emphasizes Maine's educational institutions and how they help mold the next generations of the state's artists. The PMA and the Maine Art Education Association have collaborated on this exhibition for more than 20 years now, and this year's edition once more promises more than 100 works of art by K-12 students from all over the state. While Youth Art Month provides significant encouragement to students and well-deserved recognition for educators, the exhibition is for more than just the participating students and their families and teachers. This is an exhibition for the entire community to discover the emerging voices of Maine's youth and to recognize the immense value of arts education in our schools. Youth Art Month is on view February 28 through March 29, 2015. Event #14693 |   Report Update   |   Submit An Event   |   Promote Your Event & Business |   Host & Design Your Website
